Via Daily Kos, I am happy to present you with this graph of job losses and gains in the last couple of years. I added the details showing Bush's term and Obama's:
I hardly think I need to comment on what this graph shows. Republicans have been screaming for a year that Obama is responsible for the high unemployment rates (although mysteriously, previous to January, 2009, they never seemed to give a damn about working Americans) but this one graphic gives the lie to that.
Once again, it is appropriate to point out that following Republican economic cant for eight years left our country's economy in far worse shape than they will ever admit, and that within a couple of months of assuming the presidency, Obama began the monumental task of cleaning up their mess, while they stood on the sidelines and threw rocks every step of the way.
Eventually, presumably, our nation will recover from the economic damage done to it by the Republican thieving of our resources to give to the rich. And, just like with the depression, eventually people will forget, and the Republicans and their rich friends will be back, knocking on the door, begging for another chance to gut our economy.
